For my birthday my sister Emma gave me a voucher for two people to have two games of bowling at Fat Cats. Well, due to my wisdom teeth, we are poor, so this was the perfect time for us to go out and have fun without spending money. It was a lot of fun and even Lila seemed to love being in a new place.

After the first game you can clearly see that Micah and I are horrible bowlers. Lila even bowled better than I did.

By the second game, however, Micah had at least improved his... I just got worse. :)

Lila LOVED all there was for her to look at and "play" with at the bowling alley. She would clap when she saw something that excited her and was seriously drawn to the bowling balls.

At one point, they changed the lights so we were disco bowling and Lila had even more things to look at. They had these red and green lights that would make patterns on the floor. I don't know if you can really see them in the video. You can see that she's dancing a little at the beginning and in the middle. She was dancing a lot more, but when I finally got the camera out she decided to yet again go for the bowling balls. I'm a great videographer. ;)

I forgot how much I love bowling even though I am terrible at it. Thanks Emma for the great time!

Vitamin D

To all my fellow mothers out there I need your tips and tricks. Lila is now 13 months old and is obviously ready for Vitamin D milk. She doesn't seem to really want it, however. She has had it a couple of times before, but hasn't really taken to it. She doesn't seem to hate it so I'm not worried about that, but she definitely still just wants to feed from me. I don't mind still breastfeeding, but I don't pump anymore and I'll be returning to work again in the next month, so I'll only be doing it at night when I am home. She eats a lot of other stuff so I'm not worried about her diet, but I would like for her to get on milk. She LOVES water and will drink that all day, so I can at least be happy about that. Anyway, what are some things that you did to get your child/children onto Vitamin D milk? Should I really worry about trying to get her to take it or should I just let her be? Thanks for all of your help!

Here's a beautiful picture of our baby girl just because.

Wisdom Teeth

At 24 years old I finally got my wisdom teeth out yesterday. We've been meaning to get these out for several years now and it seemed like now or never. It's only day two, but everything seems to be going well so far. When we first got home Micah had to carry me from the car, up the stairs, and to our bed. I get so sick from painkillers! Here are some lovely pictures from yesterday.

This is me right after we got home. 

This one is a couple hours after we got home... all gauzed out. I hate things that far back in my mouth. It was so hard not to gag.

These are some mighty attractive pictures, eh?

The 4th

I LOVE the 4th of July. It's such a happy holiday and it's fun to see everyone be so proud to be an American. Now, because I am not an American I just say that I'm proud to live in America. That's close right? :) Anyway, this year the day was filled with a parade, BBQ, candy poker, wrestling, family, and of course, fireworks.

Today I am 24.

Lila's gift to me when I woke up? A poop filled crib and an amazingly clean diaper. :) Haha. This little girl sure knows how to show her love. <---- Happy Birthday to me!
